"Beautiful apartment in the most perfect location"
We stayed in this apartment for week at the end of June. The apartment is very modern and spacious. It sleeps 6 although there were only 2 of us - for of group of 6 you should know that the third bedroom is accessed from the second bedroom. It has been newly refurbished so everything is very clean, and all towels/bedding were provided. It was very hot during our stay, so worth noting that the apartment does not have air conditioning but there are a number of fans. To reach the apartment there are a lot of steps, but it is worth the effort to get there because of the amazing views. From the balconies you can see so much of the lake and watch the sun setting over the mountains opposite. We were really glad that we chose to stay in Varenna. It has a fantastic ferry service to get to any of the other towns, a direct train from Milan and a great choice of restaurants, and yet it still feels like a small village. We were also really glad that we chose to stay in this apartment. Just steps away are 2 gorgeous tiny restaurants, and the centre of the village is just at the bottom of the alleyway. There are a couple of shops within 2 minutes walk where you can get all the basic provisions that you need for self catering. Luciana, the owner, was really helpful, and replied quickly to any queries we had during booking. She was also on hand if we needed anything during the stay, but as we had no problems at all with the apartment we had no need to call. I would recommend this apartment without question to anyone looking for a relaxing break on Lake Como.
